Best Quotes about Courage
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Like a boxer in a title fight, you have to walk in that ring alone.
I would define true courage to be a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De
It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had the individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Beaton, Sir Cecil
Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, Trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust in God, and do the right.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Stand up to crises. Don't let them throw you! Fight to stay calm... even surmount the crisis completely and turn it into an opportunity. Refuse to renounce your self-image. No matter what happens, you must keep your good opinion of yourself. No matter what happens, you must hold your past successes in your imagination, ready for showing in the motion picture screen of your mind. No matter what happens, no matter what you lose, no matter what failures you must endure, you must keep faith in yourself. Then you can stand up to crises, with calm and courage, refusing to buckle; then you will not fall through the floor. You will be able to support yourself.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
Marden, Orison Swett
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.
The most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.
Coubertin, Baron Pierre De
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
It takes courage to attempt the impossible. What would we think of Moses today if when it was time to part the red sea, he had said Why don't you guys go build a bridge?
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
To put it boldly, it is the attempt at a posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophists, economists and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is gone forever.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
